PLEASE MAKE A GIFT TO THE XAVIER UNIVERSITY OF LOUISIANA

EMERGENCY DISASTER RELIEF FUND TODAY!

Xavier University of Louisiana has weathered Hurricane Ida and we are in full recovery mode. Our students who remained on campus during the storm were safely transported to Dallas, where they were housed, taken good care of, and taught remotely until our campus was ready for their return in the coming weeks. And just as they have been doing with increasing effectiveness throughout the COVID-19 crisis, our supremely-talented and dedicated faculty are committed to providing all Xavier students with high-quality instruction via remote technological means.

As for the campus’ physical plant, we did sustain some damage to various buildings.  Repairs have begun in earnest.

Probably the biggest impact of Hurricane Ida is the ongoing loss of electric power to the City of New Orleans, with attendant disruption to daily life and thus, to the historic learning environment on the Xavier campus. Restoration of power transmission lines to the City will certainly take time.

Currently, the University is implementing its plan to return to the business of education with remote instruction and operations in this initial recovery phase. As always, we are guided by the tenacious spirit of our foundress, Saint Katharine Drexel.

In addition to the University’s physical plant repairs and recovery, many members of the Xavier family—especially our students and families—are facing circumstances that will require additional financial support. It is important that our students be situated so as to be able to continue their learning remotely during this period of crisis. These include students who were not able to evacuate before the storm are in need financial assistance to pay for temporary housing, as well as other unanticipated expenses.

We therefore have established the Xavier University of Louisiana Emergency Disaster Relief Fund to allow our alumni, friends, and others of good will to assist our students and families with their emergent needs.

Thank you in advance for your visionary support.
